Use this cradle to carry or weigh newborn lambs and goat kids.
The plastic ridges of the Lamb Cradle “grip” slick newborns and keep them from sliding out. Openings in cradle allow navel to protrude through the holes.
Can be attached to a Digital Scale to hold lambs and kids during weighing.
- Easy to clean—simply dip or rinse with sterile solution

This little sling is perfect for newborns and hangs well on our scale. We bought the fabric sling last year and it is great only for larger lambs. This yellow one just hangs in the barn ready to use!

This cradle seemed like a great idea. Its easy to clean and worked fairly well for weighing lambs, but it broke within the first week we used it. The plastic tore where it hooks onto a hanging scale while we were weighing a lamb. And although it worked okay for weighing (until it broke), I did not find it super secure for carrying lambs, especially if they are a bit wiggly. I have bought many things from Premier and love the quality products and the incredible customer service, this one just did not work out for us. Next time I will definitely go for one of the fabric slings.

Easy to use and clean.

Only thing to make it a little better would be nubs on the inside of the cradle to hold wet lambs a little firmer. But works great the way it is!

This lamb cradle works excellent, only wish we would have used them before. Easy to get lamb in, safe for lamb and so far ewes follow much better than any other method used, human stays clean, highly recommend this item.
